Stevia plant is a small, sweet, leafy herb. Stevia is a small perennial herb belonging to the Asteraceae family, in the genus Stevia. Its scientific name is Stevia rebaudiana. Some commonly referred names are honey leaf plant, sweet chrysanthemum, sweetleaf stevia, sugarleaf, etc. Almost all the parts of the plant taste sweet; however, the sweet glycosides are typically concentrated in its dark green serrated leaves. The Guarani Indians of Paraguay have used its leaves to sweeten drinks and foods, and employed in various traditional medicines. Please be advised that this is 100% pure leaf powder NOT solvent based extracted powder (easily available in the market). The process of artificial extraction removes any co-enzymes that aid in absorption; so even though they may be believed to be stronger or more potent, leaf powder extracts are not so easily absorbed by the body. Now the question is which is one is better? Pure Leaf powder OR Leaf powder extracts? To sum it up, leaf powder extracts are concentrated components that are easily water and alcohol soluble. They are different from pure leaf powders (which needs to be blend with things like smoothies/soups etc) in the sense that they are not just simply a ground-up form of an herb. Because they undergo tincturing, leaf powder extracts often lack some of the more stimulating properties of the herb they are derived from. However, because pure leaf powders are not extracted, tinctured, or cooked as a leaf powder extract is, they rely solely on the digestive system to extract the medicinal chemicals from the plant. TASTE: Pure Unadulterated Raw Stevia always has a strong sweet liquorice taste, which has a sweet taste, 30-50 times the sweetness of sugar. The sweetness is very different from sugar, being less instant, tart, and lasting longer. Please make sure you are happy with this before you hit the buy it now button.
